Energy efficiency has become a key concern for data centre management and there is a growing awareness of the ongoing maintenance and energy costs to operate such centres. The data centre market is an extremely complex one, with many diverse aspects to it. There are literally millions of data centres worldwide and 99% of them are embedded in the IT operations of the organisations that generate and use that data. With the enormous explosion in cloud computing and related Over-The –Top (OTT) services; secondary data centres are also becoming a parallel trend to what is happening with the large data centres.
This BuddeComm Intelligence Report offers BuddeComm’s unique insights into the changing data centre landscape due to the increasing data storage demands, rising energy costs and pressure on companies to appear environmentally pro-active. This in turn is leading to a growing demand for data centres, either operated by the cloud provider or utilised as third party infrastructure.
In 2016 Microsoft unveiled its Project Natick, an initiative to rapidly deploy low-cost data centres by submerging them. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a key topic in 2016. There has been a growing discussion around the use of Direct Current (DC) power as opposed to Alternate Current (AC) power for data centre energy management. We will continue to see the rise of mega data centres in the coming years.
